From the Inside Flap

Stile had problems on two different worlds. On Proton he was threatened with murder, and on Phaze, an alternate world ruled by magic, he had to master magic, fight a dragon, win the friendship of a lady unicorn, locate his enemy among the paranoid Adepts and return out of Phaze to win the Great Games on Proton. After that, he was ready to face the real problems!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
On the planet Proton, science works and magic doesn't, but juxtaposed with this world is another frame, that of Phaze, where magic works, but science doesn't. This is powered by a mineral called Protonite or Phazite depending on which frame you are in, and the Protonite mining of it is endangering the balance of both frames. Stile has been prophesied to ameliorate this destruction, but many powerful people in both frames are out to stop him, denying the destabilization and wanting to maintain their present status. What Stile must accomplish, jumping back and forth between frames, is enough work for ten men. How he manages it all will keep the reader on the edge of his or her seat throughout.
Anthony is not content to state a premise of this complexity without asking the difficult questions. Many authors would rely on a statement like "magic works" without feeling it necessary to explain. Anthony's world, and it's backstory, contain logical explanations for the fantastic occurrences therein. World-building does not come at the expense of characters, either. Stile's honor, incorruptibility, and personal development have converged to make him uniquely qualified for his task. Sheen the self-aware robot struggles with her inability to be "real" and her desire to be loved. Even more secondary characters such as Clef, Merle, and Trool have their own internal conflicts and personal evolving to do.
I really can't recommend this series enough, particularly if you can't decide whether you prefer science fiction to fantasy. There is quite enough of both to satisfy you.

Certainly better than most of this guy's stuff.This trilogy might be his best work.I thought "incarnations" might be good,until I got to that "hourglass" drivel.Anyway,as a young teenager I did like his Xanth books...way too mediocre to hold my interest as an adult though.I reccomend David Eddings if you like this style but find Anthony to be too inane.

I used to really enjoy P. Anthony books. I've ready so many of them, but just could not get into this one at all, but it has been quite a while since I've picked him up. May just be a change in my personal fiction taste. You can "look inside" and read a bit of it for yourself and decide. PS: Loved "Ogre Ogre"

I read this series while in Junior High in the 1980s, so I remembered it and wanted to read it again. Good Series that mixes Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Even today, it is still a great mix of different styles and is worth the read. NOTE: You won't be happy with just one book - you'll want to read all three, in order

This by far is the greatest book by Piers Anthony I have ever read. I read most of the book in school and stopped about half way through chapter Xanadu for about 3 months. When I started to read it again I was so hooked on the events and action unfolding that I read the rest of the book the same day. If you ever read one book in your lifetime, make it this one. Juxtaposition was such a good book, and had the best ending I've seen anywhere, that I found myself wishing that one day I would fall asleep and wake up in this very world that I had read about.I just wish that Mr. Anthony would have continued the series with Stile still shifting between worlds seeing Sheen to further develope their relationship. With all things considered this is the best book I've ever read. I hope Piers Anthony never stops writing.

Great ending and fairly gripping throughout. It's much better to read the first two books in the series so that you have all the background information. As a standalone it could be rather difficult to understand exactly what is going on.

Great conclusion to the series I like how his fantasy doesn't get as wordy as a Tolkein book. both excellent writers in their own sense but this book was just right for me.

Read this originally when I was 14. Now I'm introducing my son to the series along with a few other sifi/fantasy authors I enjoyed at his age. So far he loves this series and I have high hopes for other books that he might enjoy.
